I am in my second year of software engineering and is currently awaiting a part time job offer. Which is good, especially during these corona times when job opportunities have dried up.
The job offer is working in a business intelligence department and help them create Power Apps with various functionality for their clients. I love economics and IT so the job has elements I love. But I feel like Power Apps, while great for easy creation of apps, is another skill I have to spend time learning and that it wont necessarily develop me in more complex subjects, like the ones in school.
Programming and networking subjects have shown itself to be extremely complex and even though I am a decent student my head starts to spin whenever I open job applications a listing 10-15 technologies. Either I don't know how to use them at all, Azure, Node.js, Angular, REST, Spring Boot, Jenkins, JSON, Ruby, LAMP stack, Apache.... and the list goes on. Or I feel like I've only scratched the surface of it: Java, SQL, Docker, Linux. It feels like every lesson learned opens 10 new lessons. And with that I feel that a it would be better to have more technical part time job.
What do you think? Should I decline and hope for a more technical job? Or am I underestimating the experience I am going to get?
